It's a South African Cabernet Sauvignon Weekend - Open this Friday & Saturday for Tasting

Petit 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon - Stellenbosch, South Africa

Open the 6th and 7th of March for tasting.

Tasting Note:

A youthful, fresh Bordeaux-styled blend showing plums and spiciness. Very accessible with a smooth and balanced texture.

Food Matching:

Great with duck or richer chicken dishes.

Vineyard:

All the fruit is hand-harvested to ensure high standards from the outset. Blended to achieve a soft, yet rich fruit-driven wine.

The Tasting Room - Banchory's newest gin, wine and whisky tasting basement

Happy New Year everyone!

Firstly apologies as we've been pretty quiet over the last few weeks on the blog.  December was a very busy month for us opening the shop and blogging got left behind a little bit.  However, we are back now and wanted to give you some updates on what you can expect to see happening at Banchory's drink shop The Strong Water Co. the place to go for gin, beer, wine, rum, cider, whisky in Banchory.

Did anyone know that we have a pretty cool basement area here at 78 High Street?

Well if you didn't, you do now! 

We are looking to develop the space into a similar vibe as the upstairs shop space to be able to host a variety of tasting evenings. We'll be hosting a range of gin, whisky and wine tastings throughout 2020. Thoughts are also in the pipeline to develop a wine club, a gin club and a whisky club for Banchory - we'd love to hear your thoughts on this!
